I read on the net that Apple-Google are intending to buy somme Kodak Patents, see: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-1...k-patents.html, what could help Kodak to survive the storm in which they tend to submerge.
I also read (on DPreview) that Kodak stopped their 'consumer-facing operations' and "...however they will continue to make film for the movie industry, along with its 'Specialist Film' division, which makes large-format films for aerial and industrial photography...", does that include the manufacturing, and by this the availability, of B&W and colour (roll-)film and chemicals for 'normal' silver based photography?
